. OVER THLBIG DIVIDE
Well Known Salem Man and
- Pioneer'In Flax Industry
Following a stroke of apoplexy while
in Portland, Eugene Bosse, the pioneer
flax grower of Oregon, died at 8 o'clock
last night at the Good Samaritan hos
pital. Mr. Bosse, who was 76 years old was
found unconscious in his room at tho
Perkins hotel yesterday morning at 10
o'clock. He was rushed to the hos
pital and was in a critical condifion all
He went to Portland three days ago
in connection with his work at Eugene
where he was superintending flax oper
ations for the Eugene Chamber of Com
merce. He retired early Tuesday even
ing leaving a call for an early hour. As
ho failed to respond to a later call, the
clerk went to investigate and found
Mr. Bosse unconscious.
He is survived by a daughter, Mrs.
Emile Hansett of Salem and several
grand children. As yet no funeral ar
rangements have been announced.
Mr. Bosse came to Oregon from Bel
gium about -0 years ago to take
charge of the flax experiments con
ducted by a syndicate in which Mrs.
W. P. Lord was interested. His ex
periments in flax growing were so suc
cessful that he won first prize at the
St. Louis world's fair over the products
of the best growers in the world and at
the Lewis and Clark fair in Portland
and the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific fair at
Early in his efforts in flax growing,
he suffered losses from fire at his
plant near Salem. A large amount of
fibre and machinery were burned in
1SI02 in his mills at the mouth of Mill
creek and two years another mill near
the state farm was burned.
He returned to Belgium several
years ago and remained there until the
Germans confiscated the flax and
over-run the. country. On his return to
Oregon, he was induced to take charge
of the flax work at Eugene and it was
while in Portland on business in con
nection woth the Eugene work, that he

Harney County Tribune: Recent
press reports indicate that Crook coun
ty will divide instead of moving the
county seat, making Bend the seat of
the new county. This seems a very
amicable way of settling the matter.
Outsiders had begun to fear that, where
county scats were concerned, the name
of the county was significant.
Commends the Many Nice
Acts of President and
Not since 18(15 has any campaign
made such a direct call on simon-pure
Americanism. The times are too serious
to talk or think in terms of republican
ism or democracy. Real Americanism
must drop parties and get down to big
"More than any other president in
my memory, Woodrow Wilson has been
faced by a succession of tremendous
problems, any one of which decided the
wrong way would have had disastrous
consequences. Wilson's decisions so far
have not got us into any serious trou
ble, nor are they likely to.
He has given us peace with honor.
Hughes' talk about the United States
being despised iB nonsense. Neutral
ity is a mighty trying policy, but back
of it are international law, the rights
of humanity and the future of civiliza
tion. "With reference to Mexico I think
the president has acted wisely, justly
and courageously. It was right that
the I'nited States should not have recog
nized such a murderous personality as
Huerta. I do not think we should have
intervened, nor do I believe that we
should intervene now. Mexico is a
troublesome neighbor just now, but war
and conquest is not going to make her
a better one. Both against Eugland and
against human slavery the United
States worked out its salvation through
revolution and it was a pretty slow
"It has been said that Wilson at first
was against preparedness. Perhaps he
was, but when convinced that intelligent
public opinion was overwhelmingly in
favor of it, he changed. That is the
proper thing to do. A president defiant
of public opinion would be a dangerous
man in our government.
"His attitude on the tariff shows an
equal openness of mind. A tariff com
mission will take the whole problem out
of politics. It is my hope that experts
will be named and that the body will
be continuing and vested almost with
the dignity of the supreme court'.
"They say he has blundered. Per
haps he has. But I notice that he usual
ly blundered forward. You can't get
100 per cent efficiency in a democ
racy. I don't know that we ought to
want it. We would be machines, and
we would have to sacrifice too much of
"As I said at the start, it has been
just one big thing after another with
Wilson. I have never known so many
dangerous questions brought up for de
cision to any one president.
"In my opinion Mr. Hughes, if presi
dent, would find it difficult to decide
on the best course for the government
to take had he been confronted with
the possibility of a great railroad strike.
His capacity for hindsight, as we learn
from his speeches, is highly developed,
but as to his foresight we are not equal
ly well informed.
"Mr. Wilson has now had about 'four
years of experience, and he haB earned
faith and trust. I do not think it a
logical or sensible thine to change to an
inexperienced and untried man just for
the sake of change, or without much
better reasons given for the change than
I have noticed.
"Roosevelt was my choice. He has
had experience and is one of the best
of Americans, but the machine-controlled
republican party would not have
him. Therefore I am for Woodrow
Editor Capital Journal: Just a word
about increasing the tuition for stu
dents from the country districts at
tending the Salem high school.
The school board should make haste
slowly in so critical an undertaking
as to demand of our country boys and
girls more tuition than that fixed by
the clear intent of the law.
In the end the reaction will surely re
sult in not only loss to our school fund
but also in intensifying the antagon
istic feeling against the business in
terests in our town on the part of many
of the rural residents.
Should the present demand of $72,57
per country pupil for one year's tui
tion in the high school be insisted on,
this attitude will result in many of our
farmers moving into Salem with their
families resulting in the entire loss of
tuition. In other words it will greatly
encourage the present movement of the
country people into the city, thereby
increasing tenant farming in Marion
county with a consequent depreciation
of our agricultural output.
If Salem support is largely depend
ent on the surrounding farming dis
tricts, any movement that will work in--jury
to the agricultural interests sur
rounding the city will surely react on
the social and business interests in our
This attempt to build a wall around
Salem's schools and shutting- the gates
against ambitious country boys and girls

fee is certain to divert much of the
trade which rightfully belongs to Sa

The country stores and mail order
houses will profit by this move.

hold up the ambitions country pupil.

Says It Was a "Surrender to

By Perry Arnold. '
(United Press staff correspondent.)
Hampton Beach, N. H., Sept. 7. "It
is only one step to the abdication of
government," was the characterization
with which Charles E. Hughes here to
day wound up a vigorous denunciation
of the "policy of surrender to force"
which he saw in President Wilson's hur
rying through the eight hour law in at
tempting to avert the railroad strike.
The republican nominee went farther
in his denunciation of the legislation
than in any speech so far and a crowd
of about 1,500 cheered him vociferous
ly. "It is not an eight hour law," he
vehemently asserted; "it is a wage
He referred to "surrender of the rule
of reason" and declared:
"Against every effort of that sort
by the hand of the executive, the auth
ority of congress should be raised. We
cannot surender what we have wou for

have won the right of free discussion, a
free press, a democratic form of govern

have left autocracy and we have left

shall not come back if we can help it.
"We have had recently at the pro
posal of the executive, an act passed by
congress confessedly in ignorance of
what justice demands; confessedly in
ignorance of what tho facts require. It
is not an eight hour law, it is a wage
law and no one knew whether it was
just or not. It may be just, but I am

strikes a blow at the fundamentals of
our institutions. I propose in what wo
